Are you as excited as we are that spring is finally upon us?
Following the brutal winter we had here in Arkansas, we were ready to get a head-start on the warm weather, so we and our close friend, Brooke Rainwater Smith, decided to plan a girl’s trip to the beach in Perdido Key, Florida.
Even though two of the three of us have graduated from college and don’t even technically have a spring break anymore, we decided to embrace our youth and take our first-ever spring break beach trip.
Overall, it was an absolute blast—we ate pounds upon pounds of crab legs (except Sabrina because she would go into anaphylactic shock), sipped on bottomless mimosas, and danced at FloraBama like there was no tomorrow.
One of our favorite parts of the trip was the FOOD. If you are ever in the Perdido Key/Orange Beach area, you must check out Another Broken Egg Cafe.
Because Peach Cobbler Waffles. Fried Chicken Benedict. Southwestern Skillet Hash.
Need we say more?
We also had a grand ole time at The Wharf whilst window shopping, playing putt-putt golf, and riding the Ferris wheel— with frozen daiquiris in our hands at all times, of course. Several of the restaurants in this entertainment center even offer ‘penny cocktails’, where you can get a cocktail a day for literally a penny!
We must warn you, though, the beach was not nearly as warm as we expected it to be. In fact, we were only able to truly enjoy one day of sunshine during the three and a half days we were there.
But we did take full advantage of that one day by starting with beachside yoga in the morning (as relaxing as you would expect) and ending it with several hours of soaking up the sunshine, reading books, and sipping on hard lemonade.
This trip was an unforgettable bonding experience for all of us, and it was the break from reality we needed before we dive headfirst into Northwest Arkansas Fashion Week next week.
